    I just bought my flight to the splitfest, stoked to go hobnob and check out the area.

    Any of those options for the raffle is OK w/ me.

    Of the 40 rooms set aside at a special discounted Canuck Splitfest rate, only about 10 remain.

    If you’ve been putting this off, I encourage you to pick up the phone and book your room quickly. The hotel was full last year….

    Hey, if anyone is heading up from Montana-side who wants to carpool or if there’s anyone else who wants to share a room, let me know!

    So the raffle is proving to be a nightmare. The Canuckistan government can’t seem to keep it’s rules and regulations out of the way….

    The raffle has been sorted out. The regulations around donating to the Craig Kelly fund simply proved to be too onerous.

    The Canadian Avalanche Foundation (CAF) will be conducting the raffle. Tickets will be $2 each, with 4,000 total tickets up for sale. Prize pool is just over $9,000 worth of gear. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the CAF’s Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) Fund. The CAC is the body that issues bulletins and generally educates/informs – so definitely a worthy cause.

    The raffle will take place on Saturday night – just like last year and will be preceded by a slideshow or two and the North American premier of FreeRider.

    Hi Guys,

    I just moved to Calgary from Switzerland last June and am looking to hit the Splitfest at Rogers pass.

    Anybody heading out from Calgary on Friday January 6th?
    Does someone want to share a room at the lodge?
    I am also looking for so touring partners, I have been splitting for 4 years now first on a homemade split and since last year on a Jones. I have my Canadian AST1 and had been riding since ’95 in the Swiss Alps. I love riding steep lines and powder trough the trees (probably like all of us…)

    If anyone is interested in my offer just PM me and we can work out something.

    Ride On

    Alex

    If anyone wants to hook up I am driving in from Seattle with Jeri. Both of us have our Level 1s but want to meet up with other people to tour with during the festival. Shoot me a PM if you’re interested. We will ride anything from super steeps to trees just pending on conditions.

    Hey there, looking for a ride from Fernie/Cranbrook area or Golden to the split fest on Friday (if coming from Calgary I could bus it to Golden). I’ll certainly help with gas money! Cheers!
